well in 1 and 3 the sky is burned out so ur missing alot of valuble data there. and all the pics are a little to bright for my taste. about the focus it's all wrong in most of them, u have a very close focus right now and maybe if u try to put it in the canyon instead it might make it less messy I think.

but I must say that it must be wonderfull to live in a so beutiful place. i mean I live on a flat little island and that can't even be compared to that.

I like them ^.^ But for 2 I see what you were trying to do, I'd either move in closer to the stream or farther away to capture the sky. And for the first I'd move to the right alittle and try to get the hilly-slopey thingy ( I am informitive, no? Lol. ) It looks colorful and pretty ^_^ But they are very nice, I'd like to see more :3

The perspectives look ok, but I can't help but wish there was more color there. It looks like the camera used didn't quite capture the full spectrum of fall foliage, and you could bring some of that back by tweaking curves and levels in photoshop a bit.

Also speaking of range, the sky got blown out, you may want to underexpose a bit (change the camera settings so the image comes out darker than it actually is) which would preserve both the colors of the leaves, as well as any texture in the sky.

It appears that you've focused on the near surroundings and considering the span of the photos makes the background quite blurred. But they're some pretty good shots, you might want to try your hand at manipulating them to bring out the colours a bit more.

Where is this? Poconos? A city boy like me is jealous, I rarely get to see scenery like this unless I am up in the mountains to ski/fish...You are truly blessed to live in such a gorgeous place

I think you have a decent eye for composition, so I'd love to see what you can do following some of the advice given above, especially from Ace. Manipulation is all well and good, but it can only work with what's put in. In other words, work on fine-tuning the colors in the original picture first.

On another note: Looking at these makes me feel a little homesick ^^; I'm from a mountainous area of New Jersey.
